Suspect in Wednesday homicide turns self in


The suspect wanted in last week’s slaying of a 22-year-old woman in a North Toledo neighborhood has surrendered to Toledo police.

Police said Dimitrias Graves, 27, was booked into the Lucas County jail at 1 a.m. Saturday after he turned himself in at police headquarters on Erie Street downtown late Friday night.

Ms. Wells, 22, of Newark, Ohio, was found dead in front of 658 Spring St., the home of her boyfriend’s mother, on Wednesday.

Police have charged the boyfriend, Mr. Graves, of 159 Everett St., with murder and three counts of felonious assault. Another woman was shot in an eye, and two other women were shot at, police said.

Mr. Graves will be arraigned Monday in Toledo Municipal Court.

Police said neither Ms. Wells, whose lungs were pierced by a single bullet, nor the other women appeared to be the intended target.
